The Hudson Companies and the Related Companies are jointly developing the first residential building at Cornell University’s technology campus on Roosevelt Island, according to the school.

The Cornell NYC Tech building will hold about 350 housing units for students, faculty and staff. Apartments will range from micro-units to three-bedrooms. Amenities are slated to include a roof deck, gym, bike room, lounge and various media rooms. The developers plan to break ground on the building in 2015, though campus construction will kick off early next year. After the campus opens in 2017, it will have 2.1 million square feet of facilities for nearly 2,000 full-time graduate students when finished.

Forest City Ratner, announced in June as the “master developer” for the first phase of work, is developing the first academic building and the corporate co-location building, a property with offices for multiple companies and lodging for tech tenants from the private sector. The former will be a 150,000-square-foot facility and the latter a 200,000-square-foot building.
